Last Call: Dodge Teases 2023 Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger Lineup, Including Seven New Models

The Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger, in current form, are coming to an end, and the Dodge brand is seizing the opportunity to celebrate in true, over-the-top Dodge style. The Dodge 2023 lineup will pay homage to the muscle car pair with seven special models, the return of a rainbow of heritage colors, an expansion of SRT® Jailbreak models, a commemorative “Last Call” underhood plaque for all 2023 Charger and Challenger vehicles and a new, customer-focused vehicle allocation process.

Demon, Hellcat, Redeye, Scat Pack, Shaker, Jailbreak. Iconic Dodge Charger and Challenger models have ushered in a second golden age of the muscle car, continuously elevating the magic number for performance from the 707 horsepower of the original Hellcat to the 840-horsepower Challenger SRT Demon. Since the modern-day Charger was launched in 2005, the Brampton (Ontario, Canada) Assembly Plant has built 3 million Dodge vehicles, representing a billion horsepower.

Charger and Challenger are departing on top — Challenger closed 2021 as the No. 1 muscle car in the U.S. — with enthusiast demand that will only gain momentum as the brand teases the rollout of the 2023 vehicle lineup.

“We are celebrating the end of an era — and the start of a bright new electrified future — by staying true to our brand,” said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge brand chief executive officer – Stellantis. “At Dodge, we never lift, and the brand will mark the last of our iconic Charger and Challenger nameplates in their current form in the same way that got us here, with a passion both for our products and our enthusiasts that drives us to create as much uniqueness in the muscle car community and marketplace as possible.”

New Models Embrace Dodge Heritage

Dodge will pay tribute to the long and legendary history of the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger by introducing seven heritage-influenced models for the 2023 model year. The models were teased and displayed under full vehicle covers at M1 Concourse in Pontiac, Michigan, during the first day of the three-day Dodge Speed Week event, which featured announcements and reveals of current Dodge products.

Each model will share a connection to an iconic Dodge model from the past, reaching back to the dawn of the muscle-car era in the 1960s and 1970s. Graphics featured on each vehicle cover offer hints to the secret identities of the models displayed at M1 Concourse.

Details and specific information on six of the vehicles will be released later this year. The new models will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis at top-selling Dodge dealerships, with a list of dealerships to be shared on DodgeGarage.com.

The seventh and final 2023 Dodge model will be the very last of its kind and will be revealed at the 2022 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas, scheduled for Nov. 1-4, 2022.

Heritage Colors, Commemorative Plaques and Jailbreaks

Dodge brand will also celebrate its 2023 model lineup by bringing back three beloved heritage exterior colors: B5 Blue, Plum Crazy purple and Sublime green. One popular modern color, Destroyer Grey, also returns to the fold. Charger and Challenger will each offer 14 total 2023 exterior color options. 2023 Charger and Challenger R/T models will also feature new “345” fender badging, a callout to the 345-cubic-inch HEMI® engine under the hood.

All 2023 Dodge Charger and Challenger models will also carry a special commemorative “Last Call” underhood plaque, making every 2023 Charger and Challenger a true collector’s vehicle. The brushed aluminum underhood “Last Call” plaque features the vehicle name and a vehicle silhouette, as well as “Designed in Auburn Hills” and “Assembled in Brampton” to proclaim each vehicle’s origin.

The brand is also expanding the reach of its popular SRT Jailbreak models, which were introduced earlier this year for the Dodge Charger and Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody, unlocking color combination ordering restrictions and exclusive content. For 2023 model year, Jailbreak models will also be available for the 717-horsepower Challenger and Charger SRT Hellcat, providing even more owners the option of building their own one-of-a-kind muscle car.

Making the “Last Call”

Dodge is taking a new approach to getting the Charger and Challenger in the hands of its enthusiasts. The entire 2023 Charger and Challenger model-year run will be allocated to dealerships all at once, helping customers identify and secure their dream cars more easily.

Dodge will provide customers a guide for locating their desired Charger or Challenger at DodgeGarage.com, which will include information on all 2023 Charger and Challenger inventory at each Dodge dealership.

Ordering and pricing information for the 2023 Dodge Charger and Challenger will be announced closer to the on-sale date.

B5 blue that is, it’s a great color!


Terry4401

I don’t see any Blue 5 colors on the AWD GT AND RT 5.7 are they coming? I love B5 blue please tell me yes?

The Challenger’s interior is reminiscent of a vintage muscle vehicle, with a straightforward layout that was influenced by models from the 1970s and plush furnishings. The interior of the Dodge is significantly roomier than that of its pony-car competitors, and adults can actually use the back seat. Unfortunately, instead of being made of high-quality plastic, its rubberized components look more like old vinyl, and rear visibility is terrible. Although the wide front seats in the Challenger are comfortable for cruising, even those that are available and have additional bolstering don’t hug their occupants as tightly as those in the Camaro or Mustang. Compared to the Camaro, Dodge’s pony car features a larger trunk with an additional seven cubic feet of room. This allows the Challenger to swallow two more bags of luggage than the Camaro. Fold the back seats down and that advantage grows to six. The Challenger has a big center-console bin and a useful spot for a smartphone. Still, none of the cars we tested in this class was particularly adept at storing small items.
& actually i have blog about it on my site, that you can have aye on it.

I have to say that I was pretty disappointed on trying to order a Dodge Challenger. I went to my local Dodge
Dealership to order a Super Stock and they said that they could not order me one as they did not get any allocations
for that specific model. I went to those so called power brokers who had one to order and they want $50,000.00
on top of the msrp! That brings the car I wanted to order to over $160.000.00 If anyone knows a Dealer that is fair
send me a comment.

I ordered my Superstock over a month ago no confirmation yet how long will it take


BlueByYou

Got my Jailbreak Charger VON. For folks complaining about electric replacement that’s on Biden and his CAFE not Dodge. Careful how you and your friends vote come 2024. As for the allocations it’s like 2015 but at least we could see who had what BUT you had to be quick. No markup for mine, 15 days gone by, no rush, got my 15. Y’all missed that show, none out there, we ruled the street and everyone wanted to see your ride, lucky to have lived through it and now got the last model in Frostbite.


Smitty7689

It says first come first serve, just talked to a dealer in Frankin TN. They are doing a closed bid on the special edition car, would not except down payment to reserve car. They also said they was doing this so people could not buy and take the car to auction and re sale for a profit. if you buy something and the value increases that is your Gain/Profits not a Ratty dealership… This is not how you do business… if I was the first to call about the car and willing to reserve the car it should be mine!


blefeaux

I would like to receive information as soon as it is possible to order a 2023 Challenger.


Cpsmith

Just curious, does that mean they will stop the trx models too? And hemi rams like the rebel?


Bosi2013

I Am Curious To Know What Will Be The Most Expensive Challenger?


DeltaV

What? No stinger yellow? All of the other exterior colors are great, but why not offer stinger yellow too???


durelle1995

green


My797

Dodge dealers are already saying it will be at least a $20000 +++ markup on the special edition car if they get one. This should never be allowed to happen.


Chargeit1977

I’ve owned a few Chargers and Challengers in my life and have had many discussions with ol school and new school Mopar lovers and I must say we are furious that this movement has come to an end! Dodge will never be the same on the electric scale bc we love The cold starts and hearing that motor run(growl). Tho we will transition to something this is not the best move… So let’s get ready to constrain the grid a little more lol while we are at it🤔 Wonder what ideas are out there to produce alot more electricity? Going to Rev up this Mopar before there is no more pressing the gas with no aggressive sound😡


LDBaker75

Dodge, I hope you are ready to be buried, because you just put the nail in the coffin. I mean, really, a sound clip for the sound of the engine. I know video games that have a better sound then that. And killing iconic cars, American Heritage, all because you want to push European ideology for what a car should be. Keep your Ideology in Europe, and give the company to someone that knows how to keep an American Heritage alive, instead of killing it. Not every car should look, feel, and drive like a Fiat, or some Eco, fake sounding POS.


Rebel_Demon

Loved Mopar my whole life, I currently own a demon and rebel. After 2023 dodge is dead to me. “Electric-Muscle cars” are as fake as pretending these electric cars are clean energy.
Fake sounds, hard pass. Somethings stinks about this ev push, from the current government down, it doesn’t feel right or make sense when you truly look into it all.
P.s. how many fake accounts did you make for these cheesy love it going to buy it posts? Calling bull---- on all of this. Goodbye dodge, I will never even consider this electric lie.


Talen_Card

Sales and pre-orders will determine the future.
Not looking forward to this mistaken cliff we’re being driven over.


Nashaboo

Very sad day…


Tkaremba76

Looking foward to the future


Bristi2424

What sucks dad just getting rid of the Challenger and the charger and go into a light bulb running car like everybody else. Oh I may have to go back to the mustang. I mean having electric vehicles are fine but some of us like that gas vehicles and the body styles of those vehicles. Just like there’s some people I vegetarians and vegans or others still like to meat. It’s a shame you’re making it either or.


mcaudill317

S0 can I just order a non-special edition 2023 Scat Pack wode body from my local dealer?


DaytonaPete

All this talk (by non buyers) about price gauging is taking away the fun and focus what is going on here. Stop. These dealers might risk losing their allocation if they play this game. I am sure there will be pressure that they can show they can sell these inside of 30 days if not before they land. Plus direct connect may help in pinning down a deposited buyer the info they need so it arrives sold. I hope that i can have my pre approval finance done ahead of time. 20 % down plus taxes with score of 740 should get me a great rate. Thanks Daytona Pete


athaler

So will I be able to pick up a 2023 RT off the lot, or will the dealer have to order it for me?


Redeyerules

Love my 2019 Redeye, bought it before Covid took off. I am sure whatever price they sell these at will be sticker+. Better hold on to mine, should appreciate in value.


p53

A point of view of one European muscle car and Mopar fan: The announcement showed that that the HEMIs certainly will go away with style, but sadly - without a bang. The convertible, the colors, the new “tribute” trims are a nice touch. But if someone wants to end an era of fantastic engines and cars with the “wow effect”, the ultimate power HEMI car was the best idea - a lot of people were expecting to see a limited edition, 900+ HP Challenger/Charger - and it just wasn’t there. I hope it is the car to be revealed at SEMA, but why not tease it with the power numer at least? Or maybe just such a fully street-legal 900 HP combustion engine car is simply impossible with current emission norms…
Anyway, good luck Dodge! Still love you for what you have done in the last two decades


Pbz2000

I dont like the idea that you cant custom order one yourself. And whats to stop dealers from drastically marking up these new editions. Not fair dodge.


MoparProud

Literally NO ONE wants electric. It’s not sustainable. It’s no better than internal combustion. Truly a sad day…


Nlconner77

I love how Dodge is making a big deal of the Hemi cars we love and is not just letting them go quietly. Can’t wait to see what is coming!!
